A bird I have been after for years - so common and yet so skittish - the (European) goldfinch! Pleased with this :)

1000mm, f/10.

A fine photo. Am I correct in assuming that you shot this with your 500 f/4 L plus x2 II TC ?  Is this result typical of how this combination performs usually?  Which of your bodies did you use? Thanks.

Thanks :) Yes, 500L II + 2x II (I'm not sure why I had that mounted when I just got the 2x III, I only realised the difference afterwards). 5D III. Stopped down to f/10 it gives good results I would say, although this shot was in good light and the bird was quite close (maybe 5 metres away).
Current equipment: 5Ds, 5D mark III, 50D, 24-105L, MP-E, 70-200 f/2.8L II, 100L macro, 500L IS II; 1.4xIII + 2x III extenders; 600EX-RT.
Former equipment includes: 300D; EOS-M, EF-M 18-55, Samyang 14mm f/2.8, EF 35 f/2 IS, 70-200L f/4 non-IS, 85L II, Sigma 180 macro, 200L 2.8, 400L 5.6

Northern Mockingbird

I am sitting on top of a folding ladder in a makeshift blind. Not one of my easiest shots.
